Extra, Extra: Life in the Newsroom
Since poetry supports sunset epiphanies better than a family, Mr. Gallagher hedged his bets — he went into journalism with a briefcase full of metaphors. He served as the Founding Editor of the Athens Insider, an entertainment weekly where he had the opportunity to interview and chat up the likes of White House photographer Pete Souza, actor Ned Beatty, and Emmylou Harris. He even got to ask the Indigo Girls’ Emily Saliers what it felt like to lose a Grammy to Milli Vanilli, to which she responded, “Hey, at least the audience still sings all our own songs.”
Matt then moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to soak up Redwood trees and plenty of DIY kicking attitude. He recently moved back to Cleveland to be closer to family, Angelo’s Pizza, and the Tablecloth Van Gogh. (Check it out on the 2nd floor in the Impressionist’s wing of the Cleveland Art Museum. It’s the Van Gogh in the middle. Inspired by a scene of construction workers fixing a road, the artist whipped it up on a piece of scrap fabric on an afternoon break from the insane asylum. It’s freakin’ awesome!)
A Pivotal Moment: Why Humans > Robots
In the face of the tech revolution, traditional journalism itself has pivoted, perhaps off the side of a cliff in a flaming ball of glory foreverafter. Yet as newspapers continue to struggle, knowledge is more valuable than ever before. So Matt Gallagher turned his career towards SEO & inbound content marketing, including blogs, Ebooks, whitepapers, and promotional emails.
Because despite technology, we’re human beings first. Sure, computers got mankind into space, but it’s Louis Armstrong on vinyl that lands us on the moon.
Technology is only a rocketship. We are the pilot. People are the story.
To that end, Matt Gallagher has told the stories of the clients of Humanity Media, BMA Media, Bear Blend, Mango Bay Internet, Esurance, Insurantly, Josephine Homes, and others.
